Title: What's Cookin'
Post by: The15thMember on May 06, 2022, 07:25:13 pm
Here by popular demand, The15thMember and .30WCF present, What's Cookin', a thread where everyone can post whatever they are cooking, baking, or eating on any given day. 

My parents smoked a pork butt yesterday, so tonight for dinner we are having smoked pork, hash brown casserole, baked beans, and cole slaw.

We also had locally grown strawberries for desert.

I grilled brats for dinner - didn't know we were supposed to photograph and post, so you'll just have to use your imagination.

Funny thing is we both started the same thread at about the same time and they are worded similar.
Almost too similar to have not talked about it.

My family loves eating oatmeal for breakfast, but since it's been warm my mom and I have been craving cold cereal instead, so yesterday I made some granola using a recipe I found online.  It's delicious and exactly what we were looking for.

It’s just the name for splitting it by removing the backbone, and butterflying it open so it cooks better (on the grill this time).

Thanks ;) Ya know? I don't know how to grill. I've been wanting to learn how to grill.

It's just hubby and I now, so I've been looking for the original hibachi grills that everyone had in the 60' and 70's. Can not find one anywhere! But I did find one on Ebay for $345, No Joke! Where in the heck did all the hibachi's go?

Is that a solid top, like I think of at the restaurants? Seems a black stone grill would work for that. I do smash burgers on the grill sometimes on a cast iron pizza stone.

My father is the griller in our family for most things.  We just have a basic charcoal grill, which we love, although it's nothing fancy.  We used to have a gas grill, but discovered how much better charcoal grilling tastes a few years ago, and we would NEVER EVER go back to gas now. 

This was actually yesterday night's supper, which I didn't have time to post until now.  My little sister made bubble pizza, which is like a pizza casserole with Pillsbury biscuits as the base.  It's super simple, but super good.

Then for dessert we had homemade ice cream with sugared strawberries.

Some of us preferred my other sister's homemade cajeta (Mexican caramel sauce), which she makes from her goats milk.

Looks good 15. I use both gas and charcoal depending on what’s cooking and how. I prefer charcoal, but sometimes gas is just easy and steady.

Just rolled another log on. There is some nice thin smoke coming out. It was raining all night and this morning. I wasn’t sure I was gonna cook ribs today when I looked outside this morning. I could hear it raining when I woke up. Looks like it will be sunny the rest of the day. (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20220514/f31e5b9563367af9b76ff36204341723.jpg)

WHAT!  Where did you get a good-looking tomato this early in the season?!  I'm super jealous. 

I had to get creative for my lunch today, as there wasn't much around, so I took some leftover homefries and warmed them up in the microwave with leftover bacon and some Colby jack cheese, then topped with ketchup and ranch.  I call it "Fair-style Homefries".

You can always tell a home grown deviled egg. I even took the egg carton from the bottom of the stack in the fridge. I think it’s 3-4 cartons high.

I'm the designated deviled egg maker in our household.  Boy, have I been there!  We're getting like 20 eggs a day right now, so we've had plenty of old eggs lately.
Do you have a egg recipe you follow?
It’s hit or miss here.
These ones were pretty good. I minced some spicy dill chips and used a little of the brine, yellow mustard, real Mayo, S & P, and some get topped with smoked paprika. Seems not everyone in the house is a fan of paprika on a devils egg.

You guys like Heinz KC too!  That's our favorite BBQ sauce for smoked stuff.  We can't seem to find it around here anymore and we're on our last bottle.  :o

I showed my mom your pictures and she just said, "Where's he live?  We're coming over!"  ;D

Do you mean Heinz KC Masterpiece?  Created here in Kansas City?  It's on every grocery store shelf in this area!

I'm not sure, it doesn't say Masterpiece on it.  Here is what we are talking about.

So we started out with this recipe.

(https://i.ibb.co/hm3Wpm8/Deviled-Eggs-054.jpg) (https://ibb.co/hm3Wpm8)

We almost always use a dozen eggs or more, since we have a large family.  The thing is, since we've had our own chickens, I never end up with the same amount of eggs, because my mom would have varying numbers of hardboiled eggs on hand, and I always lose at least one or two whites due to the eggs not peeling well or the yokes being too far off-center.  So what I've taken to doing now is mostly just going by taste.  I take a big silverware tablespoon and add in a heaping spoonful each of mayo and miracle whip (you'll note on the recipe my mom has a note to use half miracle whip), then I measure out a customary tsp. of vinegar and mustard, stir that in, and then I taste it.  Then I'll eyeball however much more vinegar and mustard I think it needs, and occasionally a little more mayo if it seems dry.  Then salt and pepper to taste, and paprika the tops.

Gee!  You folks eat good!

Heinz has developed it's own KC style BBQ sauce.  That is all based on the KC Masterpiece brand.  Masterpiece is the label that really took off in popularity around the country.  Kansas City style sauce is thick, sweet, and smokey.  We have some famous BBQ restaurants that have been around for generations.  Everybody takes great pride in their original sauces (of course).  KC Masterpiece is similar to those but Masterpiece is usually sweeter and richer.  Local restaurants sauces usually have some kick to it. 
KC Masterpiece is rather pricey, but worth it.  Last time I checked, Heinz sells for a lot less.  If you taste them side by side, there is no comparison.  Signed, BBQ sauce snob.  :D

That's how we like it in our house!  Carolina BBQ sauce tends to be thinner, redder, and tangier, often with a (dreaded) ACV base.  It's okay, but it's something we've had to adjust to since moving down here.  Some of the local BBQ places have really good sauce, some we like to use different sauce on, and some places don't focus on sauce at all, just on the smokey meat.  My mom has kind of moved toward less sauce in her tastes, but most of us still like to slather it on!  When we smoke or grill at home we usually use the Heinz KC sauce for pork and Sweet Baby Rays for chicken.

We have a big bed of mint at the side of the house, and all summer my mom will make what we call "summer tea".  Some people call it "meadow tea".  She steeps the mint leaves in water and then makes a syrup out of that.  Then to make the actual drink she adds the syrup concentrate to water with a little bit of lemon juice.  I think it's good, but most of the people in our family go crazy for it.

15, I make wilted spinach sometimes. I’m not sure it’s the same as this though. Mine is some olive oil in a cast iron pan, chopped garlic and an oversized mound of fresh spinach piled crazy high in the pan. Medium heat for a few minutes tossing regularly will soften, darken and reduce the pile of leaves to what I would call wilted spinach. We eat it just like that.
You could add red pepper flake, mushrooms or cream it.

I grew up on this. It's great for leaf lettuce out of the garden.  I added young spinach to make it a little more nutritional.  There's probably a recipe on line, but this is what I did.
Chopped leaf lettuce and spinach and put in large bowl.  You can add chopped green onions or some sliced red onion.  I used red onion.
Fried enough bacon to have 2 or 3 +/- Tablespoons of bacon grease.
Drain the bacon and chop. Set aside.
To the warm bacon grease add a dash of black pepper, a pinch or two of salt, a few red chili flakes, one chopped garlic, and a couple tablespoons of sugar.  Heat frying pan with these ingredients, stirring, and add a splash or two of cider vinegar.  Cook until this boils.  Add the chopped bacon back in the pan and stir.   Pour this over the bowl of lettuce and toss.  Eat while warm.

.30WCF,  I have made your spinach dish with mushrooms many times.  I just call that sauteed spinach.  Works well with Kale or Swiss Chard too.

Baker,
Your recipe sounds just like my Brussels sprouts, except I use all the bacon grease, add the garlic and pepper flake then cook the sprouts until they start to crisp and char around the edges.  Never added sugar to the sprouts, but it might be worth a try, maybe a splash of honey.

I was looking for a picture of the sprouts and found a plate of lasagna with both sides.

.30WCF,  Love Brussel Sprouts!  I will have to try that.
We go through a lot of bacon when it's BLT season.  Lettuce is ready now, but the tomatoes aren't even blooming yet.

15th, I would think red wine vinegar would go well with wilted lettuce.  Use what you got!  Made it again last night.

Seriously asking, what do you sub it out with?
White vinegar burns my nose hairs and left eye melts a little.
I do like balsamic, but it’s a whole different profile. I’m not sure I would want to soak a cucumber in balsamic, rice wine or white vinegar. But I never tried.

I'd probably go for white vinegar first.  I LOVE white vinegar.  I'd probably drink it straight up if I could.  I love the smell of it when I'm cleaning with it.  Sometimes I just sniff the bottle for fun.  I agree that balsamic would be too savory.  If I wanted a flavored vinegar, or a sweeter one, I'd go for another fruit vinegar.  Perhaps the strawberry vinegar we are working on making right now. . . .  My mom learned recently that you can make vinegar out of almost any fruit scraps pretty easily, so the possibilities are now endless.

Oh my gosh, why have I never thought to just put a whole pickle on a hot dog?!!  :o  I'm doing that tomorrow if we have any hot dogs left over from the other night.   :yes:  Also, that plate is super cute. 

This was actually last night's supper.  We had fancy scrambled eggs with spinach, ham, and cheese.

Home made potato salad, deviled eggs and Kraft Mac and cheese with a good fist full of shredded cheddar melted in.

I usually add colby jack to my Kraft mac and cheese when I'm in the mood to dress it up.

.30WCF, M&M pancakes?  Pancakes with M&Ms in them?  When I worked at the children's home, on Saturday mornings I would often make homemade pancakes for 100 people.  I would usually add chocolate chips, blueberries, chopped pecans, rainbow sprinkles, etc.  Anything I could find in the storeroom!  The kids loved it. Toppings made from fruits like blueberries, apples, and strawberries were always popular too,

My girls love candy in their pancakes soaked in syrup and covered in sugar.

I've been into using honey on my blueberry pancakes lately instead of syrup.  Real maple syrup is so expensive, and that fake stuff is so. . . fake, and I had honey on crepes once when I was on vacation, so I just figured, why not pancakes?

Tonight we had fried catfish, homemade hush puppies, and wilted beet greens with bacon.  :)  My mom was looking for a way to use up the beet greens, so it timed out well with our conversation.

Can’t go wrong with that. How were the greens? I’ve never done greens like that.

GREAT!  I LOVED them.  She also tried making them in olive oil with garlic and they were not good.  But bacon fixes everything.  :yes:

I saw a product on the grocery store shelf recently.  It's called something like TreeHive.  Half maple syrup, half honey.

My sister has been experimenting with soft cheese from her goat's milk for a while, and she's gotten really good at it lately, but this week she made her first hard cheese: colby.  After resting a few days, today we waxed it in beeswax mixed with a little coconut oil to make it more pliable.  Now it will age in her "cheese cave", which is the real term for where you put cheese to age; for us it's an old fridge in the garage that's set to be between 45-60 F.  We'll be able to eat it in July.  :)
